Video: Former Trump adviser Roger Stone threatens intimidation tactics if GOP doesn’t give Trump nomination

stone-threatIn a video posted to Media Matters on Tuesday, former Trump adviser Roger Stone threatened to harass and intimidate GOP delegates if the Party tries to “steal” the nomination from his former boss.

“If Trump does not run the table on the rest of the primaries and the caucuses, we’re looking at a very, very narrow path in which the kingmakers go all out to cheat, to steal, and to snatch this nomination from the candidate who is overwhelmingly selected by the voters, which is why I have urged Trump supporters: come to Cleveland,” he told Stefan Molyneux.

“March on Cleveland. Join us in the Forest City. We’re going to have protests, demonstrations. We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in the steal,” he added.

“If you’re from Pennsylvania, we’ll tell you who the culprits are. We urge you to visit their hotel and find them. You have a right to discuss this if you voted in the Pennsylvania primary, for example, and your votes are being disallowed (Emphasis added).”

Translation: “Nice set of teeth you have. Sure would be a shame to see something bad happen to them.  Know what I mean?”

Here’s the video:

“I think there’d be extreme anger by the Trump supporters. I don’t know that it would boil over into violence. Trump is certainly not advocating violence,” he told GQ.

(Wink, wink.  Nod, nod.)

Some saw this as a clear threat.


Who would’ve thought being a reporter asking Donald Trump a question would be life-threatening, but that seems to be the case for Michelle Fields and Megyn Kelly.

The Washington Times added:

Mr. Trump has come under fire in recent months for protests that have escalated into violence at his rallies, including and incident where a supporter sucker-punched a protester in the face.

According to Cleveland.com, police have been stocking up on riot gear, using a $50 million federal security grant, in anticipation of possible unrest at the convention.

A post at the Right Scoop added:

This is just another example of how Trump relies on thug tactics and violence because he really can’t organize a campaign despite his perpetual assurances that he’s a brilliant genius. After all it’s much easier to commit violence against a delegate than it is to study and take advantage of state party rules. And the American people are letting this moron waltz into the GOP nomination…

One thing is certain: Threats like these certainly aren’t going to endear those on the fence to Trump…
